Get tangled up in a night of sexual adventure with elite London call girl Stella. I’m excited to share with you UNTOUCHABLE (Berkley Trade Paperback; October 6, 2015), a “stiletto” of a crime novel and erotic thriller that offers not just an intoxicating, voyeuristic peek into the world of high class escorts—but a complex, unlikely heroine that “readers will want to see more of” (Publishers Weekly).
That Stella has turned to tricks after a nightmarish past is not unusual. But the backstory that drove her into the profession—and the slow build in which Ava Marsh reveals intimate, telling details from Stella’s past—set UNTOUCHABLE apart, and make for both an utterly compelling heroine and a thrilling, grab-you-by-the-throat plot.
Stella is making do with the life she chose: managing a revolving door of men; nightly shifts spent working the phone at the rape crisis center; and troubleshooting the more mundane problems of being a working girl (how to identify your profession on a tax return?). But that all changes when a fellow escort is murdered, and there’s only one imperative left: survival.
Stella knows how easily men can get away with murder—especially when the victim is a prostitute. Determined to get to the truth, she finds herself in a deadly conflict opposite some of the world’s most powerful men. But there’s one secret every escort knows—no man is truly untouchable. . .
“With empowerment alongside the exploitation, and a brave, intelligent, unapologetic crusader of a heroine, this book is unlike anything I’ve read before. . . . [Stella] will stay with me for a long, long time,” says Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner.
We guarantee you’ll happily race through these pages. What we can’t guess is whether, by the end, you’ll be more invested in the stunning conclusion to the murder mystery—or whether you just need know if the inimitably likable Stella gets her happy ending, after all.
